al debate. the latest fox news poll has registered voters backing the president over mitt romney by 48 to 43%. and today's gallup poll has the president leading by 58 to 44%. one poll did measure bias against mitt romney. unfortunately for republicans the group measured wasn't just democrats but all american adults. the bloomberg news poll measured reasonable ratings. president clinton came out on top, president obama was second at former president george w. bush scored third at 46%, a solid three points ahead of mitt romney. you heard that right, george w. bush is more popular than mitt romney. and some republicans are blaming the campaign's problem on the candidate himself. an anonymous romney organization top member was quoted as saying . . . and a top washington republican . . . turning to the latest swing state polls. a survey has likely voters in new hampshire backing the president a 50 to 45%. new hampshire voters also give the president a 7-point edge. in virginia the president is leading mitt romney again by two points, as does suffolk university and d.c. 12 poll. while the

goes down in the polls. ohio is the prime example. no republican can win without ohio. mitt romney down by 8 points. abby how is he going to come back? >> it is going to be very difficult. all i can say at this point he's not going to win on electability factor. he won't win on the relatability factor. >> eliot: likability, foreign policy economics. >> where he has some room to grow, i think is on substance. he needs to win the substance debate. that will be shown in upcoming debates. >> eliot: after watching for two years, he has to win the substance debate. he has how many days left? >> he's gotta provide more of a detailed, consistent plan that people can ingrate. >> he tried that with the secret fund-raising video. he said no, i agree. as one of my colleagues, it is romney has been all attack and no substance for this race. i think in ohio, it's quite interesting. vice president biden as we reported recently is living in ohio now. and then after those polls came out, a romney advisor told "buzzfeed" that romney's internal polling they claim is within the margin of error so they

just fine. actually romney is trailing in all of the latest national and zing-state polls, and in the "politico" poll out today . . . the president may be giving romney an opening for attack on fiern affairs. that after steve quizzed the president. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there will be bumps in the road, because in a lot of these places one organizing principal has been islam. there are strains of extremism, and anti-americanism and anti-western sentiment and can be tapped into my demagogues. >> eliot: mitt romney was quick to jump on the bump in the road comment. >> romney: his indication that bumps in the road is a different view than i have. i can't imagine saying something like the assassination of an ambassador was something like a bump in the road. >> the president was referring to the situation in the region. there is an attempt to gain political advantage here. >> eliot: the president may have given romney another opening with this comment. >> obama: we're in close consultation with thelis, they with one of cja alleys. s well. >> you have

among likely voters in the bloomberg poll. mitt romney claimed to see something positive in those numbers. he told reporters earlier tonight, and i quote . . . >> eliot: not really, but to mitt these days it seems facts are what they them to be. he still struggles to get past that video where he puts down nearly half of the nation's voters as dead beats. 54% of registered voters have an unfavorable view of comments while 32% viewed them as favorable. and now he addressed the voters directly. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> eliot: romney even praised his massachusetts health care program, romney told nbc news, and i quote . . . one can only imagine what would have hand if romney had embraced his health care plan at the start of this raisin stead of running away from it. according to the "new york times" cbs news poll of three swing states the president leads his challenger by 12 points. mr. obama is out in front in florida by nine points, and in ohio, president obama

appease your enemy. >> yes, and the romney folks all saying the polls are weren't saying this when 75% of the republicans were against mitt romney in the primary, but they are now. >> eliot: he is starting to talk about his own record embracing the thing that most people said worked when he was governor which was his own health care bill. >> you know mitt romney is in trouble when he is taughting the positive things he did for people. i think he should have done it all along. he had this wedge issue and all he has to do is fall back on state's rights. all he had to do was say yes, the same program barack obama had. but it's about what states want not a nationwide mandate. if he had done that the gop would have respected him. >> eliot: he never showed that he had the force of character to stand up to anybody, and as a weak, ameba-like, spineless, and that's what turned the public against him. it is premature to do an autopsy, but this thing is not over. >> yes, it is. >> eliot: let's talk about todd akin. this guy keeps -- what is going on in missouri? >> he gets his butt whipped by a

romney's attacks on the national security record had an impact? the most polls i saw still show obama polling in the 60% of people who trust obama in security. i don't think what's happening in libya, though it is horrible and disturbing as it is, it is going to have that big of an impact come november. >> eliot: i could not agree more. mitt romney speaks about foreign policy. he will get thin slivers of certain groups. he may pick up a few conservative jewish voters based upon the failure of the president to meet with netanyahu. overall arc and argument for the campaign fails. every day he doesn't speak about the economy he loses. he has a better chance there than foreign policy. osama bin laden is dead. end of argument for that. >> that's part of the reason we see such a jump for obama since the dnc because he has been winning the foreign policy debate. he has been winning on national security. lil' he's also winning on economics. >> that's what romney's biggest problem is. he's not winning on economy or national security. >> eliot: he should go on vacation. he would do better. ever

polling suggests the only issue where mitt romney is leading obama is who do you feel more positive about for the future, it is president obama. there are two things going on. the democrats had a very successful convention making the case that it was a much deeper problem that the country faced than anybody knew four years ago. most americans tend to believe that. secondly, president obama has come across as a little more likable on economic issues. when people are asked who would you rather sit next to on an airplane flight for four hours president obama wins by 25 points. >> eliot: go on air force i. >> it is not that big a gap in terms of likability, you're also going to have a strong gap in terms of who do you like in terms of understanding your issues and your pocketbook. >> eliot: let me ask youing the same question, dick. there is a likability factor and the white house has been enormously effective over three or four months starting with bain. then the tax return issue. then the 47% tape which is a self-inflicted wound by the romney campaign. the aggregate effect of all of t

do. what specifically are you offended by? and if romney -- he can't go to the mandate. his polls show when you ask people what do you feel about the overall bill, people say they're kind of half and half on it. when you start rattling off the specifics of the bill, they become very popular. i don't know how mitt romney criticizes the president's healthcare bill and isn't forced into the specifics of it. >> there's one exception of the popularity which is the mandate. it is still unpopular. obama is in a little bit of a bind here as well. you hear obama talking about those popular benefits of the healthcare bill on the stump. you don't hear him talking about the mandate and i wonder if he will want to -- how thoroughly he will want to talk about the healthcare bill given as a whole, it is relatively -- >> eliot: should the president use this opportunity to thank mitt romney for the individual mandate and then defend it and basically say we both came to the same conclusion, this is necessary as a matter of conservative market-based ideology, this is how you pay for all of the good
